New UAlbany weather center to help track severe storms
There’s a new center at UAlbany that aims to strengthen decision-making processes during severe weather events around the state.
The Weather Risk Communication Center will be a collaborative effort between university researchers and state emergency managers.
The center will receive $1.5 million annually to operate. It will employ 10 people, have students work hourly and there will be internship opportunities.
Al Roker from the Today Show and Gov. Kathy Hochul recently toured the facility.
